UK has its Senator Stevens too

Looks as if our legislature’s knowledge of the Internet has nothing on the UK’s government.

The Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott in appearing to display his ignorance of the internet when he spoke about allegations about his private life observed in a BBC radio interview with John Humphreys ‘…I think it’s called the internet, isn’t it, or blogs or something, I’ve only just got used to letters, John, I haven’t got into all this new technology, but I watched the guy on television last night who does that, saying I have no evidence for these allegations I have made.

Isn’t it great that blogs, net neutrality, and even the Internet are beyond the comprehension of the folks who pass laws governing their use. Perhaps, that’s the case on 90% of things laws are passed on. But we’re talking free speech here folks.
